..:: A little something about the musical ::..

The Sound of Music is the famous musical taking place in WWII. Set in Austria, a young woman named Maria leaves an Abbey to become the governess of Captain Georg Von Trapp’s seven children. Captain Von Trapp raises his children strictly, but Maria teaches them about the importance of music and it soon becomes a big part of the entire family.

Kurt Von Trapp is the Captain’s second son and fourth child.


Nick's bio reads:

NICHOLAS JONAS (Kurt von Trapp) Seen in Broadway's Les Misérables (Gavroche), Beauty and the Beast (Chip), Annie Get Your Gun (Little Jake), and A Christmas Carol (Tiny Tim, Scrooge at eight). Nicholas is a gifted singer, songwriter, and dancer with numerous recording and commercial credits. All thanks to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Love to Mom, Dad, my three awesome brothers, and Shirley Grant Management.
